William asks…

virus protection?

I had to reformat my computer, and when i go to install my old virus protection program ( ZoneAlarm ) it won’t let me, because i’m using 64bit now.

does anyone have any suggestions on a virus protection program that i can use with 64 bit? one that is really good on protection?

softwareguru answers:

I have researched all anti-virus products and the best anti-virus protection is Kaspersky. Kaspersky is the best all-round anti-virus program. NOD32 is just as good if not better, it runs faster and has less software conflicts but may be more difficult to use.

The most popular free anti-virus programs (AVG and Avast) have poor detection rates (82.82%, 87.46% respectively). Norton is notoriously bloated and takes forever to perform full systems scans.

Recent tests prove Kaspersky and NOD32 are better than the best sellers Norton and McAfee (

Trend Micro Antivirus is a viable alternative if you’re having a lot of trouble with software conflicts. Trend Micro rounds out the top three. If you want a free anti-virus Avira has higher detection rates than AVG or Avast! (94.26%).
